Halifax, Nova Scotia

This charming port city, sitting upon the vast North Atlantic, flaunts the friendliness of a small town whilst offering the amenities and culture of a large modern city.

Stoll along the famous waterfront boardwalk, indulge in world-class shopping or take your pick of the many historic landmarks Halifax has to offer. Halifax is a city full of tremendous beauty and entertainment all year round. No matter what your interests or type of holiday you are looking for, in Halifax you will enjoy the best of what Eastern Canada has to offer.

Downtown Halifax is home to one of the world’s longest boardwalks, attracting more than two million visitors each year; making it the most visited attraction in Nova Scotia. Along the bustling waterfront you will find a range of the city's best restaurants, art galleries, boutique shopping and stunning views. A temporary art installation named ‘Drunken Lampposts’ was displayed in 2013. The bendy light posts sprawled across the boardwalk made a huge impression on the city with both the locals and visitors and soon became a permanent addition to the already captivating Halifax waterfront. From the waterfront, catch the Halifax Transit Ferry, the oldest salt-water passenger ferry service in North America, for a trip to trendy Dartmouth.

A short drive away from the energetic urban centre is Peggy’s Cove region. A relaxing coastal haven with sensational scenic walks or drives, famous historic sites, quaint beaches and delicious seafood. This region is most famously known for the iconic Canadian landmark and one of Halifax’s most popular tourist attractions: Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse. The Lighthouse, built in 1915, is still functioning today and has become one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world.

Nova Scotia proudly embraces its rich history, preserving 87 Canadian national historic sites, each one telling a story of discovery, cultural diversity, conquest and scenic beauty.
